Obeying the law (of physics)! Kinetic energy and momentum explained

In my video on the Crookes Radiometer, I showed that the devices spins because of a thermal gas effect -- not the force of photons hitting the vanes.  In the comments section, someone asked about kinetic energy and how incoming photons impart force to the rotor.  This video is a more complete answer to that question.
